It’s also a really great option if you want to explore public play as it’s relatively quiet once inserted and has a really great battery life! The main downside of the Lush is that it doesn’t provide any clitoral vibrations. Many people expect the tail to vibrate, but that’s not the case so keep that in mind if you are someone who needs clit stimulation.

The We-Vibe Chorus is a couple’s vibrator that delivers deliciously powerful vibrations during penis-in-vagina or dildo-in-vagina sex. The Chorus has two rumbly motors — the internal arm sits snuggly against the g-spot delivering vibrations to both partners, while the external arm provides clitoral stimulation. The We-Vibe app allows you to explore unlimited vibration patterns or play long distance. The Chorus also comes with a remote that lets you control the preprogrammed vibration patterns manually or give it a squeeze for a boost of power just when you need it!

The vibration quality of the Chorus is just amazing — We-Vibe deliver once again! Deep, rumbly, and very strong! It’s also the perfect answer to hands-free clitoral stimulation during sex — no more cock rings that don’t quite hit the spot or having to hold your bullet vibe! The only downside of this toy is the app connectivity, which can be unreliable, but that may have improved with the new app updates! Another thing I love about the Chorus is the storage/charging case — it’s so discreet and keeps everything clean and safe.

Although the vibrations aren’t the strongest, the combination of the internal rotations and the external vibrations provides a lot of stimulation! The large base case be a little annoying as it can cause the massager to slip out, so you will either have to use this in a reclined seated position or hold it in place.

A remote control is also handy for edging as you can quickly adjust the settings. Let yourself get almost to the point of orgasm and then slow it right down until the feeling subsides. Then you can work yourself up all over again! Repeat until your are ready to go for the big O!

How to clean a remote control sex toy

Always check the cleaning instructions provided with your remote control sex toy to make sure you don't damage it. If your toy is waterproof, you can wash it with water and fragrance-free soap or a sex toy cleaner. If it's not waterproof, use a damp cloth and soap or sex toy cleaner to wipe it down. Be extra careful with any remote controls as they may not be waterproof!

Porous
materials

Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

Non-propous
materials

Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

The toys with electrical
components

If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
